We’re excited to announce that we have partnered with Spectrum Groupe, whose suite of Confluence and Jira apps and extensive expertise in agile, ITSM, SAFe, DevOps, and the Atlassian suite are set to complement our own.

Founded in 2011 and named an Atlassian Platinum Partner in 2019, Spectrum Groupe specialize in knowledge and tools that enable organizations to digitally transform, both at a technological and cultural level. More than 5,000 customers around the world use their Marketplace add-ons for Confluence and Jira, such as Spectrum Formatting Macros and Glossary. They also offer a Platform Migration solution, great for those keen to move their Atlassian estate to the cloud thanks to the forthcoming retirement of Jira Server. And they produce a series of insightful white papers analyzing and comparing dozens of solutions on the market under their Spectrum Benchmark banner.

How this partnership came about was a bit untypical. Jamale Harris, Old Street’s Head of Partnerships, explains, “They saw our music video and asked to be in our next one! Jokes aside, we’ve been following the progress of Spectrum Groupe for some time now, just as they have been following ours. We feel there’s great potential in pooling our resources and expertise and that amazing things will come out of it for our customers. Their knowledge of digital transformation requirements combined with our knowledge of data storytelling and agile best practices will provide an unshakeable foundation for our customers to build on.”

The possibility of being in our next music video was not the ONLY reason Spectrum Groupe joined us!

Kyle Keitzman, Senior Sales Executive for Spectrum Groupe, says, “Spectrum Groupe and Old Street Solutions have joined forces to give the end user more choice in design, functionality, and operability. By combining our resources and know-how, we can create opportunities for increasing and enhancing functionality across the Atlassian estate and alleviating the need for multiple platforms and integrations. And of course, yes, we’re also angling for a role in their next music video!”

Chris Cooke CEO Old Street Solutions

Chris founded three successful startups in Thailand: one was a Scuba Diving School/ Eco-Tourism company dedicated to saving turtles. Once he’d saved enough turtles, he moved back to the UK to pursue his dreams in software.

It was while working for the Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner Clearvision that Chris met Jacek. The two decided there was a gap in the market for easier-to-use Atlassian tools for Jira and Confluence users who don’t have a clue how to code (of which there are many).

“If we’re not making mistakes, we’re not trying hard enough.”
